Return or contact Maxtor. For a fee they have the equipment and processes (that are proprietary) to retrieve your data. Do not restore the HD because it will erase ALL information!

> I do not want to screw anything up.

First, purchase a new internal disk-drive (newer? faster? bigger?) and set aside your current disk-drive, rather than "overwriting" any of the files on the current disk-drive when reinstalling Windows.

Second, reinstall Windows.

Third, reinstall the Maxtor software that you used to do the "backup".

Fourth, connect the OneTouch, and use that Maxtor software to "restore" the files.

Since your "original" disk-drive is not connected to your computer, it is IMPOSSIBLE to "screw-up" disasterously.

I would like to clean, erase the contenue of my Maxtor... how to do it??


If you are operating in Windows. click "START" and then "COMPUTER" or "MY COMPUTER". a screen will appear with all fixed and portable drives hooked up. Find the Maxtor hard drive and RIGHT CLICK it. In the drop down menu choose "format". this will erase EVERYTHING on it so make sure you have saved anything you want to keep in another place.

Can I put stuff from a comp. w/ a virus onto a maxtor hard drive


Yes, naturally it depends on the virus, what kind it is and where it is stored. Most of the time you can safely transfer files to another hard drive worry free. I would not use a program such as "Ghost" that copies all your system's drivers over. Only save necessary files, format your old hard drive and re-load everything.

Hope this helps,

Thanks
